Shaping the Future 2030
SEIU 21st Century Blueprint Committee
coined the term VUCA to describe a world that is increasingly
volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. In a VUCA world,
organizations - especially unions - need to be resilient and
adaptive in order to survive and thrive. That's part of the
thinking behind the SEIU's 21st Century Blueprint Committee, which
is working to develop long-term, game-changing strategies based on
an understanding of the future. The work of the Committee is
still in progress, but this talk will share some of the lessons
during the first "forecast" phase of the work. we will share
an overview of 6 megatrends shaping the future for workers in the
U.S. and globally, and what the union has been learning in the
process of exploration.
Dave Snapp has worked in the labor movement for nearly forty
years. He currently staffs the SEIU 21st Century Blueprint
Committee. He has been an organizational and strategic
consultant to unions since 2000. Among his clients have been
